That would be because no other state has such scale of violence and scope of involvement?

That would be totally correct but we still can't just turn the other way when it comes to the effectiveness of the jkp SOG. They are an extremely effective and deadly force and operate very well along with the army in the state. The bells and whistles which other state SWATs have is great but the thing which matters the most in the end is experience, which frankly speaking the SOG has plenty of. Imho it's a record only matched by the Greyhounds.

I believe so. Some of them had to pay heavy price due to revenge by jehadis.

One must appreciate the guts it takes to pick up a gun against a trained killer.
